    Come out to http://HoustonTechFest.com on Sept-12 at the NRG/Reliant Center.  I will be presenting on behalf of http://www.HCCUG.org – my session is titled "To School, with your head in the Clouds!", providing insight into Cloud Offerings for day-to-day use by Students and Parents. I look forward to seeing you there!
    I have moved into my dorm in UT Austin, rooming with a good friend of mine, as I start the next phase of my life.
     This past June, I co-presented with my dad  @AnthonyTexM at http://www.SQLSaturday.com  #408 Houston on June 13th. Our session was titled The Global Cloud and I.
    I sincerely appreciate the faculty & staff of Bellaire High School for supporting me and helping me achieve during my time there, especially (a) Mr. McDonough for giving me the opportunity to open the Commencement Ceremony with the Pledge of Allegiance, (b) Ms. O'Leary of the Magnet office, and (c) Ms. Herrin of Student Council.
     I am grateful to, (a)  the One Above to be able to bring back Second Place statewide in the Texas Personal Finance Challenge, and (b) Mr. Clark, my AP Microeconomics + Macroeconomics teacher. 
    Last Summer I  was given the opportunity to be one of 53 students worldwide to attend the University of Pennsylvania's Management & Technology Summer Institute (M&TSI-2014).  This link discusses the program: http://technical.ly/philly/2015/08/18/jerome-fisher-program-in-management-technology-summer-institute-mtsi/
